something considered amusing not because of its originality but because of its unoriginality. According to Susan Sontag, "The essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.

Campy movies: Attack of the 50-foot Woman, Plan 9 From Outer Space, The Tingler, Barbarella
Other examples: Baltimore, The National Enquirer, fake fur, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Tiki, and polyester plaids

An individual whom evolution and society both favor because he exhibits selfish, cruel, extroverted genes which will enable to him to successfully negotiate the adult world. Society pretends to dislike him, while hypocritically acting as if we approve of his behavior. Contrary to popular belief, bullies often ARE successful later in life, while their victims are not. After all, it is strength humans value and strength that rules us.

Bullies may be beneath contempt, but I also hate to admit that I may envy them.
